Robinson's Lemon Barley water - where to buy in Toronto?

Hi all,

Does anyone know who else in Toronto carries the above product, besides Mrs. Bridges' British Bakery at Eglinton Square? Mrs. Bridges' is out of stock at the moment, and doesn't always have it in stock for that matter.

Thank you!

      Thanks, 001mum! It's a bit far to drive there, but shipping might be possible - I'll ask my Mum (who wants it).

          Thanks, katdog; I tried phoning but no answer as yet - perhaps they're closed on Mondays. Will try them again.

          Susan, there is the Scottish Shop @ Leslie/401 I believe I have seen "British Stuff!" there-maybe give them a call? There is also a Britsh shop in Guelph in one of the malls off
          Hwy6 North which turns into Gordon Street. (i think it's where the No Frills is) if you ever take a day trrip out there * give them a call first.(**** well, it was there 2 years ago) :)

          I'll try to remember to ask a friend (from England) and then check back with you.

            Thanks, 001mum! I checked the Scottish Shop and they carry it but they're also out of stock till the end of the week - must be a popular item!

            1. re: susan_e_webb

              I believe i saw it in the window of the Chocolate Box on Donlands.

                Thanks, Marie! I've driven by the Choc. Box many times - will now have a good reason to stop in; the location is handy too.

      2. It might be out of town but I think 'Blighty's' in Orangeville has it in stock. From their website

          Thanks, Spelunk! This, along with the other hounds' advice/locations, could be the makings of a Robinsons "Quest for Lemon Barley Water" road trip! Cheers, everyone!

              not sure if you are near the leaside neighbourhood but a store at bayview and millwood, Dolce & Gourmando, has both the lemon and orange barley water
